Try disconnecting the LCD and the touch Screen

Reconnect the LCD and touch Screen to see if the problem is still there.

IF the problem is still there then you would need to buy another Touch screen. and try it with the new one

There are rare occasions where the touch screen u bought will be a defect. (happened to me before)

Where did you purchase the screen at, those cheap eBay screens will only cause you problems. I also use kapton tape around the inside of the screen to cover the metal edge that comes in contact with the metal frame when the screen is put down. Try a screen from Ifixit and see what happens, also to save some time you can buy adhesive called bowler tech that is precut and applies to the frame, never had a screen lift with this stuff.

Most likely 90% of ghost touch is defective touch screen, return and exchange it under a warranty and replace. Also test screen before putting back together to make sure the digitizer cable is not defective as well.
